Lyrics

This thing called love
I just can't handle it,
this thing called love
I must get round to it.
I ain't ready
Crazy little thing called love.

This Thing called love
It cries in a cradle all night,
It swings, it jives
It shakes all over like a jelly fish.
I kinda like it
Crazy little thing called love.

There goes my baby
She knows how to Rock n' roll
She drives me crazy
She gives me hot and cold fever
Then she leaves me in a cool cool sweat.

I gotta be cool relax, get hip
Get on my track's
Take a back seat, hitch-hike
And take a long ride on my motor bike
Until I'm ready
Crazy little thing called love.

I gotta be cool relax, get hip
Get on my track's
Take a back seat, hitch-hike
And take a long ride on my motor bike
Until I'm ready
Crazy little thing called love.

This thing called love
I just can't handle it
this thing called love
I must get round to it
I ain't ready
Crazy little thing called love
Crazy little thing called love
Crazy little thing called love
Crazy little thing called love.

Oh yeah..
